The 9 components of Social Leadership

The 9 components of Social Leadership | About leadership | Scoop.it

The journey towards Social Leadership takes us through nine stages: we CURATE our space, choosing the stage we will perform from. We develop our STORYTELLING skills, learning how to structure the narrative and tell stories that are relevant and timely, interpreting the world around us to create meaning. We SHARE those stories wisely.

About leadership
I strongly believe in a new type of management style. Not the control-and-command style, form which Managers are derived, but working together based on trust, empowerment and cooperation. Leaders in stead of Managers. All part of my philosophy call 'Qualtism'.

New Blogging Series: “New Leadership in the New Economy: Diversity Matters”

New Blogging Series: “New Leadership in the New Economy: Diversity Matters” | About leadership | Scoop.it

Leadership is no longer defined by years spent in the industry, seniority with the company or the number of gray hairs on our heads. Innovation and social strategies play an increasing role in who wins – and who gets left behind. Often by necessity, leadership is getting younger, stronger and more diverse

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, April 14, 2015 6:55 PM

I suspect diversity has always mattered. Perhaps we are more aware of that need. What I find intriguing is how often diversity is shut down in the echo chambers we call organizations.

Creativity: An Undervalued Leadership Skill

Creativity: An Undervalued Leadership Skill | About leadership | Scoop.it
In addition to skills like organization and strategic thinking, leaders should incorporate creativity in order to nurture the most productive teams.
John Lasschuit ®™'s insight:

By Ron Burg. As a leader, you do have control and power of certain people or groups. However, you should refrain from micromanaging and trying to control every aspect of a project. Micromanagement kills morale and imagination. Learn to step away and offer guidance and support. When you do this, you are sure to see the creative talents shine.

True two-way conversation can break the cycle of ineffective communication.
John Lasschuit ®™'s insight:

By Elizabeth Doty: As a leader, communicating can sometimes feel like Groundhog Day. No matter how hard you try to get your message across, it is all too easy to find the next day that you face the same blank stares, predictable objections, and questions that indicate that you failed to make it stick — that people just aren’t getting it..

Becky Willmoth's curator insight, April 8, 11:05 AM

In today’s fast-paced economy leaders are bringing together teams with diverse experiences, resources and perspectives to identify game changing opportunities for their organisations. However, for such collaboration to succeed, genuine communication is essential. This article in Strategy + Business offers advice for leaders looking to master the art of two-way communication:

 

  1. Slow down - create the opportunity for people to come to you with new information, questions, or ideas.
  2. Create a safe space – it is important it is to create psychological safety, if you want to explore diverse views and foster ideas.
  3. Ask inviting questions - Questions help you focus a conversation without limiting creativity.
  4. Listen with a willingness to be influenced - The best way to improve communication is to focus on the listening part. How much time do you (really) allow for listening to others and what they want to discuss?
  5. Use reflection to deepen the learning - You can build the skills for dialogue by periodically pausing to reflect on your conversation. Simply ask people to call out what is working and ways the group might engage more effectively.
  6. Summarize and ask for commitment - As two-way conversations are usually wide-ranging, it is very important to recap what was discovered, where you are now, and what is needed next.

 

When considering opportunities to develop leaders’ two-way communication skills, Action Learning incorporates the elements recommended here, whilst allowing diverse groups to work together to identify creative solutions to real problems.

Managers manage thing-s and that includes humans. Leaders have relationships with people about the things they do. In schools, we have many managers. They can assign a number to people and determine something about them. That way managers never have to come out of their offices or caves.

Is Empathy The Next Great Management Trend? - OPENforBusiness

Most organizations have long been driven by a mix of execution and expertise. What if empathy is the next great management trend, though?
John Lasschuit ®™'s insight:

By Ted Bauer. I’m not entirely sure “empathy” will be the third arc of managerial styles, because … I think “The Temple of Busy” might kind of drown empathy in the flood. But I’m hopefully that if we moved from execution to expertise and we want to keep that alliterative train going, the third stop should be empathy.

IoT: A Fog Cloud Computing Model - OpenMind

IoT: A Fog Cloud Computing Model - OpenMind | About leadership | Scoop.it

Internet of Things (IoT) represents a remarkable transformation of the way in which our world will soon interact. Much like the World Wide Web connected computers to networks, and the next evolution connected people to the Internet and other people, IoT looks poised to interconnect devices, people, environments, virtual objects and machines in ways that only science fiction writers could have imagined.

John Lasschuit ®™'s insight:

By Ahmed Banafa. The term fog computing is also referred to as “edge computing,” which essentially means that rather than hosting and working from a centralized cloud, fog systems operate on network ends. That concentration means that data can be processed locally in smart devices rather than being sent to the cloud for processing. It’s one approach to dealing with the Internet of Things (IoT).

Leaders Who Can Read Collective Emotions Are More Effective | About leadership | Scoop.it
How a leader manages collective emotions can create or destroy enormous market value. It can also have a huge bearing on what large groups of stakeholders think of you.
John Lasschuit ®™'s insight:

By Quy Huy. Prior research has found that individuals typically focus either on the trees or the forest, but rarely both when facing the same target. This means that some managers are simply better (or more naturally disposed) to reading the individual or the collective emotions, but not both.
